The purpose of this article is to provide a review of the most recent literature concerning document supply and related matters.


The article covers the reading of over 150 journals as well as monographs, reports and websites.


That the fundamental debate on the direction of scholarly publishing continues intensely and that opposition is growing to DRM constraints. Electronic books remain a small minority market but the mass digitisation of books is proceeding apace. Open access continues to grow but with widely differing views on its impact – the publishers start to fight back.


The paper represents a useful source of information for librarians and others interested in document supply and related matters.
